The COVID-19 pandemic forced everyone to change and adapt very quickly. There were bumps and bruises and completely new situations along the way, but there were also many positive takeaways. Our session will focus on the practical lessons that should have been right in front of our eyes, but weren’t brought to light until hit with the COVID-19 pandemic. We will outline how the pandemic helped us implement positive changes in the following three areas:

- Fundraising strategy and work with frontline fundraisers
- Management and leadership growth and flexibility
- Prospect Development’s role, impact, and work within the organization.

As every organization is different, we hope to engage with attendees on practical changes they have made, or tried to implement, as a result of the shifting landscape of the last two years. Finally, we will end with a discussion on how to continue these practices long after the pandemic has faded and concrete strategies on how to recognize the need for change or new ideas before a global crises forces it upon us.
